Three haircuts by Edward Tricomi!

Legendary Warren-Tricomi Salons co-founder Edward Tricomi is known for demanding excellence in everything he does. Be it hair, fashion, or music – when Tricomi is involved, perfection isn’t just expected: it’s inevitable.The roots (no pun intended) of his renowned career began after a suggestion from his sister that he try cutting hair to supplement his income as a musician. Growing up, Edward read Vogue religiously, devouring and absorbing the art within it. Moreover, as the grandson of a fashion designer, he was always surrounded and inspired by the world of fashion. Decades later, Edward is perhaps the most iconic and influential hair historian of our era.

Warren-Tricomi prides itself on being more than just a hair and beauty salon. All stylists trained at Warren-Tricomi are required to study and become experts in not only styling, but also fashion history. It is fundamental to the Warren-Tricomi brand that this extensive knowledge and perspective is present in every single haircut given in their salons. Few other salons can also make this claim, in the same way that few other salons are perpetually and actively on the forefront of beauty and fashion in the way Warren-Tricomi has been for the last 25 years. This significance and influence is evident in many facets of Tricomi’s business, one of which is the fact that they do at least three fashion shows each season, all over the world.

Throughout his prolific career Edward has mentored many well-known stylists including Italo Gregorio, Patrick Melville and Ric Popino. He has worked with virtually every celebrity, including Barbara Streisand, Mick Jagger, Nicky and Paris Hilton, the Kardashians, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon. Edward is constantly garnering inspiration from the people he works with: models like Patti Hansen, makeup artists like Pat McGrath and photographers like Roxanne Lowit.

The legacy of Edward and the Warren-Tricomi Salons continue to be a driving force and influential cornerstone of both the beauty and fashion industries. Their cutting-edge techniques, coupled with their deep appreciation and understanding of history and those who have come before and inspired them, enables Edward’s business to be the embodiment of modern fashion and beauty; at once both trendsetting and classic. Yet despite his significant impact and illustrious, celebrated career one esteemed fashion photographer and devoted Warren-Tricomi customer calls Edward a “phenomenon and one of the most talented hair dressers in the world” passionate and devoted beauty pioneer and mogul Edward Tricomi will tell you he’s never worked a day in his life.

It's official: Laurent Gardinier has been named successor to current president Philippe Gombert. He will take over the role on January 1, 2023 following a six-week handover.

The new President: reaffirming our commitments

Laurent Gardinier, a co-owner, along with his brothers, of Relais & Châteaux Domaine Les Crayères in Champagne, and of Parisian restaurant Le Taillevent, currently represents the association as National Delegate for France and has served as a member of the board of directors for 17 years. As President, as well as honoring the commitments of his predecessor, he will be dedicated to serving our member properties and enhancing the solidarity of the Relais & Châteaux association and the fundamental values it embodies. Assisted by an experienced, complementary management team that shares his ambitions, he will ensure the democratic vitality of the Association while giving teams clear, balanced and ambitious development and performance objectives.



"I am focused on three main areas: reducing our environmental footprint with economically realistic solutions; preserving biodiversity, working in particular with our chefs; and enhancing respect for each of our employees and increased social responsibility; all while maintaining the financial health of our association," said Laurent Gardinier.


The outgoing President: tireless dedication

Philippe Gombert, who was elected as President in November 2013 and has served two successive terms. He will remain active within the association, as Honorary President, a member of the Commission Network, and as co-owner, with his wife Stéphanie, of the Château de la Treyne in the Dordogne – a member of Relais & Châteaux since 1992. During his governance, on November 18, 2014, he presented an ambitious vision for the association to UNESCO, pledging to 'make a better world through food and hospitality' and to 'elevate the fine art of living'. This vision, drawn up with Olivier Roellinger, Vice-President of Relais & Châteaux, and in collaboration with our chefs, defines the arts of hospitality and cooking with respect for the future of the land and its people, taking into account the uniqueness of its 580 independent properties spread across 65 countries.

"I am very optimistic for the future of Relais & Châteaux. Between the Executive Committee, the Management Committee and their teams, the association is in good hands. Our civilization, our world, is at a fundamental turning point, but Relais & Châteaux has the right people and the right tools to adapt, evolve and advance with it," said Philippe Gombert.
The 2023 Executive Committee: skills, continuity and renewal

Laurent Gardinier has formed an Executive Committee to ensure the governance of the Association. It has eight members, including four new ones, and is comprised of five men and three women:

First Vice-President: George Goeggel of Auberge du Soleil, Rutherford, California – member of the committee since 2009
Vice-President, Chefs: Mauro Colagreco, Restaurant Mirazur, Menton, France – new committee member.
Vice-President, Africa: Shan Varty, Londolozi, South Africa – new committee member.
Vice-President, Asia-Oceania: Kana Otowa, Restaurant Otowa, Tochigi, Japan – new committee member.
Vice-President, Europe: Vito Cinque, Il San Pietro, Positano, Italy – member of the committee since 2017.

Treasurer: Matías de Cristóbal, Awasi, Iguaçu, Argentina, Patagonia, Chile – member of the committee since 2017.

Established on five continents, from the Napa Valley vineyards to Provence to the beaches of the Indian Ocean, Relais & Châteaux invites people across the globe to savour delicious journeys, to discover the inimitable art de vivre engrained in each local culture and to share an incomparable, unforgettable experience. Relais & Châteaux members protect and promote the wealth and diversity of the world's culinary and hospitality traditions, to ensure they continue to thrive. They are equally dedicated to preserving local heritage and the environment, as articulated in the association's Vision presented to UNESCO in November 2014.
